run. laugh. celebrate.
Imagine a powerful sea of women on the move–encouraging fellow runners, creating unforgettable moments, and celebrating personal running triumphs. Picture a post-race party and expo all wrapped up in one memorable “after-party expo” where these strong goal-oriented women come together for well-deserved celebration. This is the Muscle Milk Light ZOOMA Women’s Race Series.
I loved the atmosphere at this year’s race. Women coming together with their girlfriends, running their first (or tenth!) half marathon or 5K. The thing about ZOOMA is that it’s not just about the miles from start to finish.
It’s the journey. It’s about the training and having a support system to help you get to the start, and properly celebrate at the finish. And ZOOMA does it VERY well.
I’m excited to announce I have been selected as a ZOOMA Texas Ambassador for the 2013 race!
ZOOMA Texas lets you savor the splendor of spring wildflowers in the Texas Hill Country, as you wind your way through 13.1 miles well outside of Austin city limits. Bluebonnets and Texas paintbrush dance in the waving grasses on either side of the quiet roadways that make up this scenic race. For the last few miles of the half marathon, you’ll traverse exclusively on the gorgeous grounds of the host property, the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort. Less than 20 minutes from the Austin airport, the tranquil, gracious setting—complete with a few authentic Texas longhorn cattle—is the ideal retreat for a girlfriends-getaway. There’s even a secluded adults-only pool overlooking the Colorado River that borders the property, perfect for chilling post-race. The pool is part of the resort’s award-winning Spa Django, offering restorative massages, body treatments, and facials. Consider treating your tired feet to a Texas Two Step Massage after challenging yourself in the race.
Given that the race is in Hill Country, there’s no getting away from inclines and declines, but the course’s natural beauty and the race’s all-women’s vibe will carry you along. The after-race party expo, held under a rustic wooden roof on a pavilion overlooking the river, is the ideal location for sampling complimentary wine, shopping, perusing results, and sharing laughs and memories with friends old and new.
